. >> when we equivocate on speaking up for our values overseas, our freedom, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom for women and women's rights and individual rights, when we do this we project weakness abroad. martha: decades after fighting for our country a vietnam veteran is fighting to receive his social security benefits. he's 69 years old, his name is william murphy of california. he was born in the uk to an american father and says a custom's agent approved his u.s. citizenship. the social security office, however, rejected the documents that he thought he could use to prove that citizenship, including his army enlistment papers. >> now it's like, oh, well you served us, and you're just a cast away. a lot of years just to get to where i'm at. martha: murphy's pay stub shows that he had regularly paid into the social security system. tough situation. bill: there was a new book raising questions about how many taxpayer money is spent on perks for the president and first family. according to my next guest taxpayers spent $1.4 billion last year on -rg from staffing and housin
a middle east of progress and peace. we want to see the three great religions that strange forth from our region, judaism, christianity and islam coexist in peace and mutual respect. but the medieval forces of radical islam you just saw storming the american embassies throughout the middle east, they oppose this. they seek supremacy over all muslims. they are bent on world conquest. they want to destroy israel, europe, america. they want to ex -- want to extinguish freedom. they want to end the modern world. militant islam has many branches from the rulers of iran with their revolutionary guards to al qaeda terrorists, to the radical cells lurking in every part of the globe. but despite their differences, they are all rooted in the same bitter soil of intolerance. that intolerance is direct the first to their fellow muslims, and then to christians, jews, buddhists, hindus, secular people. anyone who doesn't submit to their unforgiving creed. they want to drag humanity back to an age of unquestioning dogma, unrelenting conflict. i'm sure of one thing. ultimately they will fail. ultimately
the muslim religion for them, but it is not for us. and they expect us to end our first amendment -- s, can notrican,s c accept that they have their culture and we have ours. we stand for freedom, rights, i don't think that you should back off of those for one moment. we support israel that has their values as well as ours. there is a very different set of police. it is just imposed upon them by political and religious leadership. >> iran. before we get to that, i want to talk about the 1980 presidential election because you were involved with that one as well. and there might be a parallel here that we can discuss. historically, an american presidential elections, 50% of jews to vote for the democratic party. and president carter, the each got 40%. congressman anderson got 20%. those numbers were just historic. it may or may not have influenced the race, but it had a post camp david ethos. yet another un resolution where they passed a resolution saying that jerusalem was occupied. and the occupation of jerusalem, that issue was not strongly preventing that. >> he directed the un delegates
, want an open society. and the other are basing themselves very much on a leftist view of religion and they're in a struggle. >> brian: you say that other group tends to be arm as opposed to the people who are modernized. that's the sad and frustrating part for us. >> the real problem is that you got kind of three elements jostling together in the middle east at the moment. regimes that have been in power a long time. they provided a certain stability, except they don't anymore. the second group are people who i would call your open minded, modern people who believe in pluralistic and open societies. they are badly organized. then you got your radical islams who are numerous and very well organized. unfortunately, therefore, it's going to take a significant amount of time before the second group actually comes through and takes power. >> gretchen: it's interesting because if you looked at the polls three, four weeks ago, most americans didn't care about foreign policy in this election cycle. it's interesting how politics changes on a dime. i mean, now you have this in the forefron
to indonesia, people of different races, religions and nations have lifted millions out of poverty while respecting the rights of their citizens. and it is because of the progress that i have witnessed in my own lifetime, the progress that i have witnessed after nearly four years as president, and i remain ever hopeful about the world that we live in. the war in iraq is over. american troops have come home. we have begun the transition in afghanistan. and we will end our war on schedule in 2014. al-qaida has been weakened. bin laden is no more. nations have come together. americawe have seen hard choices made. to put more power in the hands of citizens. and in a time of economic challenge from the world has come together to broaden prosperity. through the g20 we have partnered with emerging countries to keep the world on the path to recovery. -- and worked with african leaders to help them feed their nations. new partnerships have been formed to combat corruption, and promote government that is open and transparent. and to ensure that women and be a part of politics. all of these things
the freedom of religion we have lost protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offenses video because millions of our citizens are among them. i know that there's some that ask why don't we just banned such a video? the answer is enshrined in our laws. the park constitution protects the right to free speech. here in the united states like me the majority of americans are christians and we cannot ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. as president of our country and commander-in- chief of our military i accept that people are gonna call me awful things everyday. and i will always defend their right to do so. ! americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the rights of all people to express their views. even news that we profoundly disagree with. we cannot do so because we support hateful speech but because our founders understood that without such protections the capacity of each individual to express their own views and practice their own faith may be threatened. we do so because endeavor society
working-class voters hit hard by the economy, 55-28 for romney in a recent study from the public religion research institute. so there's a lot of work to be done, and there's a message to say, hey, look, this is not the new normal. do not be satisfied with spending a bunch of tax money to keep this mediocre status quo. romney needs to get on that message. jon: simon, roughly half of all jobs lost have been lost by white men, so how does president obama try to appeal to them? >> well, was i think -- because i think the white men view the economy the way that most voters see it which is they know that things were really bad when president obama came to office, and things have gotten better. i know that not everybody who watches this believes that, but that's the case -- >> a lot of people who don't have jobs don't believe that. >> i know, but things are getting better. there's nobody spiking the football here on the economy, but clearly things are not only getting better from where they were when obama took office, but in the last few months -- [audio difficulty] as you just heard a minute
believe that muslims should be freed as christians and others should be free to practice their religions. that is all the president is saying. i think it is important that the united states and israel be together here publicly. there is a separation between the u.s. and israeli governments which is not healthy. you want to have a united front publicly. you do not want to disagree in front of our adversaries. we'll have an honest disagreement with the israeli government. prime minister netanyahu has intervened in our political campaign by suggesting the united states should draw military force if iran does x, y, or z. that doesn't make sense to me. we should want our president to be able to use his own judgment at the time to make this decision. i agree with president obama. try to restrain israel and preventing israel from attacking is the right decision. we should support israel. again, i think the president is showing a lot of wisdom here. host: this is a photo from "the new york times." "train allies in afghanistan, with their guard fully up." what do you make of what some are calling
but netanyahu laid out his vision for peace in the region. >> we want to see the three great religions that sprang fourth from our region, judaism, christianity and islam coexist in peace and mutual respect. yet the medieval forces of rad call islam who you saw storming american embassies of the middle east, they oppose this. they seek supremacy over all muslims. martha: david lee miller live at the united nations. david, what has been the reaction to that speech? >> reporter: martha one thing worth noting soon after prime minister netanyahu spoke mitt romney issued a statement essentially endorsing and echoing the remarks of the prime minister. romney joined the prime minister's call for a middle east progress of peace and he joined the call to prevent what he called the gravest threat. by that he meant a nuclear armed iran. now yesterday the israeli prime minister met with secretary of state hillary clinton. the u.s. position has remained the same though. the united states saying that it is not drawing any red lines. secretary clinton saying we are not setting any deadline. she also
raising other issues. religion correspondent lauren green has more from our newsroom. >> reporter: in the last year, 15 married men have joined the catholic priesthood, and more are on the way. it began in the 1980s with a provision from pope john paul ii, and there's been about three a year in the u.s. father charles huff and his father were both just welcomed into the catholic church, and they are part of a growing number of married episcopal ministers, offering anglicans a way to join the church of rome. the 31-year-old, married to his college sweetheart, has two children and one on the way, the oldest just started school. >> i have one vocation, and that one vocation is to be a priest, a married man, a husband and a father. and they have to all work together. that comes very practical to me. >> reporter: this doesn't mean the vatican is changes kids centuries-old rule about priestly celibacy. ordained priests are not allowed to marry. this is a special condition created for anglicans who are already married, but it does create practical challenges; insurance costs, housing, pe
and diversity. there's beauty. this is about acceptance of different cultures, religions, different peoples of all walks of life. >> reporter: david said it will be a prominent statement to the countless people who pass it. >> how we have rallied and stood up for what's right in this community. >> reporter: the community has shown endless support. hours later, a fund-raiser was also held to benefit the sikh temple victims and lieutenant bryan murphy who was shot 15 times by the gunman. >> he's a hero for the community and for everyone here in oak creek. he's a strong man. we can't be thankful for enough for what he's done. >> reporter: more than a hundred volunteers from the temple police department and other community businesses held a dinner and raffle to drum up money for those who are recovering and for those families who lost a loved one. wrist bands and t-shirts were also sold as a token of rather bans. >> it -- of remembrance. >> it touches my heart because i know what these people are going through. >> it's hard to see your friends and coworkers go through the difficulties they've h
't conservative enough and didn't put religion into the political marketplace enough. but i don't think that's going to be the widespread expectation of the american people. i think the tea party is seen as a force that energized the republican party initially. but is now really become an anchor around the party. mitt romney has really has not been allowed to advance more mainstream positions because the right and the religious right are holding him back and i think you can find a number of senate seats that the republicans would have captured in 2010. and in 2012. >> we're going to look at one in indiana a little bit later. >> quickly, ed, if it's not the conservative christian coalition that becomes the backlash group, if you will. what might that group look like in terms of demographics at least? >> i think eleanor touched on it at the beginning. if the president is able to win 70% of the hispanic vote or get close to that, republicans and some of them have been talking about it this cycle realize they have to find a way to appeal to the hispanic voters in this country. because if they do
amendment said congress can not interfere with the free exercise of religion . can congress force religious organizations that condemn abortions to pay for it? >> gretchen: the supreme court not supposed to rule on how american people feel about the issues. rasmussen poll that the voters stands on the repeal of the health care law. 52 percent. 42 percent say bother. >> i am not surprised. the health care law lost popularity in the political campaign. but it is going to require a republican president and congress to undo the individual man date. if you are thinking can the supreme court rivisit the individual man date they can but probably won't. they >> gretchen: we could see more of the cases coming to them because of the 2700 pages. >> absolutely and soon maybe 2700 different cases out >> gretchen: and you will look at all of them. have a great day. before you get on a plane, prime target for terrorist and about to meet the team whose job it is to cope them out. it is it a busy morning in "fox and friends". barry sanders and why he's switching to be a mitt romney vorst now. the former gov
freedom and liberty, including the freedom of religion, you have to allow people to say and do things that you find abhorrent. and you can't react every time you're insulted. i mean, that's the first thing we all have to teach our children. and i don't mean to compare the people rioting against us in cairo or anywhere else to children. that's not the point. the point is, if you live in a shame-based society where you think nothing good is going to happen, the temptation is to wait for somebody to say something you find offensive, then you can lash out against it. but free people, mandela, absorb destructive things and refuse to be destroyed. yes, americans don't understand all muslim countries as well as we should. but they need to understand us and themselves. you cannot live in a shame-based world. you won't make it in the 21st century. there's too much diversity. there's too much stuff going on on the internet. you've got to be able to say, if you believe in islam, that i believe in a god and a prophet strong enough to withstand the criticisms of petty, narrow minded, mean spirited
repression as they exercise their rights, that they have universal rights of freedom of speech, religion, freedom of association, freedom of access to information, and that governments in the region had a responsibility to move towards political and economic reform because it was clear in the context of the arab spring that it was the only way towards long-term stability. at the same time, i think the president recognized -- and this is something that doug mentioned -- that there was not a one size fits all policy for each of these countries and that each country had to be taken on its own, so our policy towards tunisia and libya and egypt and yemen and syria and elsewhere had to be modified based on the situation on the ground and also an understanding of how best to promote reform while preserving american interests in this vital part of the world. i think it's, i think it's important that the president never suggested, nor i don't think has anybody who's ever study l -- studied democratization that this would be an instantaneous change, instantly become this kind of "kumbaya", freedom
